First off, make sure not to call a "bet" a "raise". If you can check, that is you aren't facing an amount you have to call, then when you put in chips it is called a bet. If you have to put in some amount of chips to continue with the hand, and you want to increase the pot, it's called a raise. If it is confusing, just remember this old poker adage: "You can'...

When you straddle in the traditional sense in a poker room that allows them, it's considered a "live" straddle. Several popular variations of straddling exist, but one common element is that they're "live." This means that the straddler is paying for the privilege of acting last in the pre-flop round of betting. If the dealer in your example is saying that ...

The size of the last raise is the minimum size for the next raise. In the case you explained, player two at minimum must make it 20. That is the last raise was 8 dollars making it twelve to go, so the next minimum raise is eight more, making it 20 to go.

Short answer: no, player 1 can't raise here. Assuming here that player 1 opens the betting in your example, player 2's all-in is less than an official raise, so it does not re-open the betting for a player who has already acted. Player 3 is free to raise here because he has not yet acted, but he elects to call instead. If player 3 had raised, player 1 ...

In most card rooms, the raise to \$11 is perfectly valid. Some have pointed out here before, though, that some european poker rooms use a different convention where any raise must be double the last bet. In that case, the minimum would be \$14.

No. Player 2 can either call by putting in 100 to match the big blind here, or he can raise to any amount 200 (100 big blind + 100) or more. Then players 3 and 4 will have their right to act, during which they can each opt to call, raise, or fold when the action is on them. A player going all-in for less than the blind doesn't eliminate those players' right ...

Common rules: The initial bet was the \$20 big blind. John's \$35 all-in does not constitute a raise, and so does not affect the action. Pete's \$45 all-in is the first raise. The next raise would have to be \$70. There are a few places I've been with a house rule that an all-in of more than half the proper amount does constitute a raise, and so in one of those ...

UTG+1 must still min raise to 200 as the blind (100) is still the bet. Again, UTG has not met the min raise so you can still bet to 200. UTG+1 must raise to 340 as the last raise was of 120 (100 to 220) UTG+1 makes a min raise from 100 to 200 (raise size=100), UTG+2 must then at least match the last raise size and make it 300. If there was an all in from UTG ...

• The minimum legal raise is equal to the previous raise amount. • If the previous all-in raise amount was less than the minimum raise, then the minimum raise is equal to the previous minimum raise. • If a player goes all-in for less than the minimum legal raise after the open raiser, and is called by at least another player, the open raiser will only be ...

@Dutch.Boyd's answer contradicts the very TDA he posted with it. B: In no-limit and pot limit, an all-in wager of less than a full raise does not reopen the betting to a player who has already acted. Therefor, in a NL game, if you bet 500 and the action comes back to you, you may only re-raise if another player has made a full raise behind you. A full ...

Limit games are very tricky with this. If in a 3/6 Hold'em game, player A bets \$3, and player B goes all-in with \$4, then player C has the option to call the all-in, complete the raise to \$6, or fold. If player C completes the raise to \$6 then player A may call the \$6, fold, or reraise to \$9. Now, on the flip side, if player A bets \$3, and player B goes ...

No, no. The "current bet amount" is 100, the big blind. Each player in turn facing that must call 100 if he can, go all in short if he can't, or raise. The fact that a player went all in short ahead of you does not in any way affect your options. For the next player it's 100 to call, or 200 or more to raise. If a player goes all-in for an exact call, then ...

Your VP would still be 33% as you could have raised/called when you were in SB and BB - the tracker will only exclude walks where action was folded round to your BB. As for the PFR, this generally means 2-bets so will also be 33% given you raised once out of three hands where you had the option to. Your 3-bet and 4-bet stats are recorded separately and ...

Nope, a raise is minimum 2x the amount raised. So to the \$11 raiser, minimum raise would be: \$7 - \$3 = \$4 raise so he/she could call \$7 or raise to a minimum of \$7 + the raise, \$4.

It's when the UTG player posts an additional blind and thus is given the chance to act last. This action is not considered a raise to the rest of the table.

110\$. 70 + 40. 70 is the last total amount, 40 is the last legal raise amount. 100\$. 70 + 30. 70 is the last total amount, 30 is the last legal raise amount. Obviously a min 4bet is stupid here, but it is still a legal raise.

This can vary. In a lot of European card rooms the minimum raise is the size of last bet, not the size of the last raise. So let's say in a 1/2 game you raise to 6, then someone else reraises to 12. In many European rooms the minimum bet for you to raise now is 24, while in most US rooms it would be 18.
